Why is Ôspis Turmeric one of the most precious in the world?

In a world always more polluted, it is hard to find places free from contamination. The deep valleys of the Himalaya are part of those rare exceptions. Far from the plains which favor the agricultural industries and its intensive and mechanized way of production, the plots of our farmers are small and terraced on the steep hills. They need regular and attentive care. The plants grow in a peaceful environment facing the mountains. Our spices are harvested and processed traditionally and dried under the sun. Only after this, they are manually ground in a traditional mortar.

 

The altitude and the harsh environmental conditions in which the turmeric grows push its organism to develop its immunity, meaning higher medicinal values. The turmeric is one the most sacred plants in the world, on one side because of its medicinal properties but also thanks to its capacity to absorb the energy around it. Its religious function is to carry the prayers of the devotees to the spiritual world.
We take care of every details and every step of production because we consider food as sacred and as the first medicine.

THE PROJECT

Two-thirds of the profits earned will be redistributed

 Like the Siddah philosophy itself, our project is holistic.

Can we be healthy without quality nutrition? Can we obtain healthy nutrition if our farmers and our lands are ill?

In order to secure a healthy nutrition, the first part of our project supports  an NGO working in the indian Himalaya. Himalaya Ethno Botanic Garden Society develops and safeguards an indigenous seedbank to help protect the Himalayan botanic heritage, which is threatened by genetic and chemical contamination brought forth by modern agricultural and industrial processes.The NGO tries to create well-paid jobs for the local population, many of whom are migrating to cities to find work. Moreover, it offers new income opportunities for the farmers and promotes a revaluation of their products, work and knowledge.

The second part of our project is the development of a clinic in South India.

Which health system must be developed in order to supply efficient medicine accessible to all?

Each medical model is based on a truth and the culmination of knowledge and experience. The application of Siddah philosophy, therefore, is not to the exclusion of modern approaches. As practitioners, it is our responsibility to understand how and when different medical approaches can complement one another. That is why, we defend a holistic health system which combines various approaches to the health. Each one finds elements of its own expertise and space. The model we want to put forward is that of integrative medicine.

Our practice is composed of the following elements:

  • A traditional and ecological building in a natural environment
  • A hospitalisation center
  • A Swiss medical follow-up in Geneva
  • Ayurveda, Siddha, Allopathy, Homeopathy practices
  • A dispensary supplying full medical care at affordable cost
  • A production unit of Ayurvedic/Siddha medicines
  • An organic farm including a medicinal garden, a vegetable garden and a cowshed

What is Siddha medicine?

It is hard to date the origin of Siddha medicine. Indeed, it reflects milleniums. Siddha medicine is the heritage of the Tamil or dravidian culture   It is a medical philosophy and science developed by several saints called Siddhars (From the root Sid: wisdom). This extraordinary knowledge has been revealed to them in order to purify all dimensions of human beings, to allow human soul to evolve freeing it from Samsara the reincarnation cycle .

 

Siddha medicine shares basic principles with Ayurveda. That is, it considers Man in total interdependence between His environment, His body, His mind and His soul. We call this approach: holistic. Man is the fruit of the universe. He is composed of the same five basic elements and works according to the same laws as Nature.

 

The Siddha medicine considers each human being as unique. The practitioner translates this through personalized management of all patients. He or She builds a solution, in harmony with the patient based on an awareness, the adaptation of daily food, the establishment of regular Yoga type exercises, the adjustment of certain behaviours and the introduction of a natural medicine treatment.
